LibriVox recording of War and Peace Vol. 2 (Dole Translation) by Leo Tolstoy. (Translated by Nathan Haskell Dole.) Read in English by MaryAnn Spiegel. I am inclined to rank Count Tolstoy not among the realists or naturalists, but rather as an impressionist. He is often careless about accuracy. Numberless incongruities can be pointed out. He is as willing to adopt an anachronism as a medieval painter. I would defy an historian to reconstruct the battle of Austerlitz from Count Tolstoy's...
